hdminer - Bitcoin GPU miner in ATI CAL IL History: - 21 Dec 2010: first fully working version is completed, I start mining with it - 28 Dec 2010: I advertise hdminer on IRC and sell the first copy (with source code, but license prohibits redistribution) - 24 Jan 2011: I advertise hdminer more broadly on the forums at https://bitcointalk.org/?topic=2949 - mid-2011: hdminer becomes obsolete as the performance of open-source cgminer catches up with my implementation - 04 Apr 2017: I release and place the code in the public domain, mostly as a historical artifact Author: Marc Bevand, m.bevand at gmail.com License: hdminer is hereby placed in the public domain For installation instructions, see file "INSTALL". Performance modelling. Blending: 48 steps doing 13 ops each: 5 ops to compute s0 5 ops to compute s1 3 adds to compute a word Steps: 64 steps of 20 ops each: 5 ops to compute s0 2 ops to compute maj (optimized with BFI_INT to replace 5 ops) 1 op to compute t2 5 ops to compute s1 1 op to compute ch (optimized with BFI_INT to replace 4 ops) 4 ops to compute t1 2 adds to update intermediate hash values 8 adds to compute intermediate values Minus: 3*20 because the last 3 steps of the second hash are not executed 7 adds are not necessary in second hash because only H needs to be computed Expected and measured bitcoin hash/sec: HD 6990@sw1 2703e9/((48*13+64*20+8)*2-3*20-7)/1e6 = 720M, measured 746M HD 6990@sw2 2550e9/((48*13+64*20+8)*2-3*20-7)/1e6 = 679M, measured 708M HD 5970 2320e9/((48*13+64*20+8)*2-3*20-7)/1e6 = 618M, measured 569M HD 6970 1352e9 = 360M, est. 375M HD 5870 1360e9 = 362M, measured 333M HD 6950 1127e9 = 300M, measured 315M HD 5850 1044e9 = 278M, est. 256M Ideas: - pick a merkle root so that its last word + s0[timestamp] = 0 to allow precomputing most of the blending - precompute as much of the blending as possible for 1st SHA-256 - most of the blending for 2nd SHA-256 can be precomputed (zero words) - getwork at least every 6sec data: 00000001 [--- previous hash --- --- ---] [--- merkle root --- --- ---] [tstamp] [tgtbit] [nonce-] 00000080 00000000 00000000 00000000 00000000 00000000 00000000 00000000 00000000 00000000 00000000 80020000
